The DSA aims to increase transparency around content moderation and the Act foresees codes of conduct for very large online platforms which would turn self-regulatory instruments into co-regulatory ones. Questions remain: How will this work? Will it be enough? How will compliance with codes be evaluated, and who should be responsible for this? This event seeks to explore and assess the challenges of a self-regulatory approach, by drawing on two examples: the Code of Practice on Disinformation; and the Code of Conduct on countering illegal hate speech online. Panelists will be invited to share their views on these issues, identify existing initiatives and potential gaps, and propose remedies. LOCATION:EIF online event TRANSP:OPAQUE END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
